Tip leads to meth operation

Gable

A North Manchester man is being held without bond after police uncovered what they describe as a "significant" meth manufacturing operation south of Silver Lake in Kosciusko County.

Detectives went to a Warsaw residence on Tuesday that resulted in a tip that led them to an address in the 11800 stretch of South Peru Road, according to a statement issued by the Warsaw Police Department.

Officers report seeing marijuana on a table while talking with Jeff D. Gable, 49, of North Manchester, which led to a search warrant. Police report finding finished meth and items used to make meth.

Gable was charged with dealing/delivering/manufacturing methamphetamine; possession of chemical reagents or precursors to the manufacture of methamphetamine; and possession of meth paraphernalia, the police said.

Warsaw drug tips can be called into the Warsaw Police Department at 574-372-9540.
